This paper sought to determine the level of compliance and the extent of problems encountered in terms of developing the disaster preparedness plan among coastal and upland secondary schools in Negros Oriental, Philippines.Findings reveal that the secondary schools? level of compliance in developing disaster preparedness plan is only satisfactory since the compliance measures are not strictly complied. While the extent of problems encountered in developing school disaster preparedness plan is moderate. Further, the results reveal that lack of involvement of teachers, community, non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders; and lack of needs assessment in terms of personnel, material resources, and infrastructures in developing disaster preparedness plan are the top moderate problems encountered in developing school disaster preparedness plan respectively. Furthermore, there is no significant relationship between the level of compliance and the extent of problems encountered in terms of developing disaster preparedness plan among secondary schools. Hence, there is a need to enhance the disaster preparedness planning in school through active participation and involvement of all school stakeholders; and strict compliance of the protocol in developing school disaster preparedness plan.
